Whats most important to me, with NO TAB TARGETING comes NO ASSIST BUTTON, or no autoassist addon. Also healers must target targets of their healing spells to, and there is no standing in place and spamming one aoe heal (like WP in Warhammer). There are also no frames with player names that you can klick on and your spells start to fly automatically and heal everyone around without even knowing where they are.

Bodyblocking and using obstacles is also great. As a dedicated pvp player i like this combat system a lot.

 

Ps. Hope anyone understands what i write, my english is so bad :(

 I love Tera too, for what it is, but pvp was wayyyy better in gw2 where tab targeting is optional. I predict Tera will be a ghost town when gw2 gets into full swing. Idk, I'll prob resub it when I'm bored and they actually release an endgame.

Nothing against GW2 and will say it will be a great game.... however, the combat in TERA gets boring a lot less quickly than GW2, imo. Why? Becaue GW2 PvP is degraded to circles on the ground and who range dps specs better. Why was WAR pvp so broken again? Didn't it have something to do with too many aoe?  TERA has aoe but the damage begins to fall off the moment more than 1 target is hit to a very managable amount if a large group is hit by a single spell.   TERA pvp is focused around the ability to single out and burst other players instead of spamming ranged aoes as you see in GW2 pvp BUT granted that when not in large pvp gw2 does have other options than spamming aoe mindlessly.  

In the end no matter which can you like, you can't really say GW2 has a higher skill cap given the nature of it's combat system and class balance.

Aoe damage is capped to 5 people in GW2, so no, AOE is not the end of all things in PvE or PvP.

Obviously, like all other threads out there, this will ultimately turn into something chaotic, something hateful, or whatever. 

Either way, the fact of the matter is simple, reason being why this game is good IMO, and why its fighting - pvp will be better than anything else coming out (not mentioning anything specific) is because of

 

NO TAB TARGETING

Abilitites do not auto hit, you must aim, and you cant spam TAB and just hit whatever the **** want.

This reason is why, anyone who is hardcore PVP should pick up this game, end of story.

Having taken a Lancer to 40 and an archer to 20 the lack of tab targeting is a bit of an illusion.

Combat isn't exactly fast paced and many abilities have you rooted until the animation finishes. This is important because unless your target isn't attacking you the lack of a tab targeting is pretty meaningless. The targeting system is very forgiving and there are a number of abilities that home in if used while target is in reticle.

Many attacks are more of an AoE attack meaning that lack of tab targeting is even less meaningful.

In any case I found the lack of a tab targeting to be something that felt more or less as something not very note worthy because the game plays in such a way that things would pretty much be the same with or without it.

The slower pace of combat, the AoE nature of most attacks, the fact that targets are rooted for most of there ability uses, and the fact that I have come across many abilities that seem to become homing missles regardless all adds up to make the absence of tab targeting negligible as the game plays largely as if there were a tab targeting system. It doesn't function at all like a FPS or TPS game does.

This is all of course just IMO.

OP  5/09/12 7:02:42 AM#68

Again, I feel alot of people are missing the point.  Tab targeting is incredibly lame.  Look at any game that has it.  For instance, my warlock in WOW, spam tab, spam seed of corruption, game over, spam any other dot accross the board, auto hits no matter where I am or where I am looking.

 

Again all this talk about not action combat.  What is really action combat then?  If i swing a massive axe twice the size of my body, should i be able to run around and swing it with one hand?  The roots are there for a reason, they make you think.  Games that are not like this are easy mode, you can use any ability and have no regrets.  Here if you use a move that requires full body movement and roots character movement and you miss you get fucked up.  That is true combat, you have to be looking at the person, you ahve to how and when to use abilities.  Honestly too, we need not say more, because the people that complain are the people that will just revert back to old games, or wait for for more WOW clones to play.  Those that actually see the challenge and the fluidtiy of this combat system will be PVPing and those are the ones I want to be playing with.

People who say Tera's combat is great and refershing, guess what WoW nerds, it's not. it's old and copied from alot of other korean mmos. The only big difference between Tera vs other is U3 engine graphics.  Please get your facts straight. Thanks you Bai.
